I Think, Therefore, I Am? – Tip #11

Most people’s thinking is involuntary.  Automatic.  Repetitive.  Strictly speaking, you don’t think.  Thinking happens to you.  The voice in your head has a mind of its own, and unfortunately most people are at the mercy of that voice.  Get out of your head!  Let go of those stories.  Give your brain a rest!

The Ego – Tip #12

For thousands of years humanity has become mind-possessed.  As Eckardt Tolle says, “Through a complete identification of the mind, a false sense of self came into being – the ego.  There’s another dimension to ego and it’s this:  emotion.  Emotion turns into ego when you identify with them; that is to say when they become “I” takes over.”  How do you get a handle on this?  Become mindful.  Allow your mind to become still and see what is really there.  It is then you may really blow your mind!
